14 - 21 September 2013
Simon Turner tells us:

A bit if advance warning with this one: A Canterbury Tale will be screened as part of the Alton Film Festival scheduled for the week of September 14th to 21st 2013. (Yes, you read that right.) "The festival will be advertised nationally and amongst the most popular films that will attract audiences will be Brief Encounter and A Canterbury Tale. Around each screening will be other activities themed to reflect the film itself, for example, the Brief Encounter experience could include a trip on the Mid Hants Railway, afternoon tea and a talk by members of the society that has helped to preserve the famous Cairnforth Station which was used as a location for the film. Younger visitors will be able to enjoy cartoons of the period as well as interpretation sessions and interactive talks by veterans." Sounds great - I'm going to start planning for it now!

29 & 31 December
Marc David Jacobs tells us:

This is Marc David Jacobs from the Centre for the Moving Image (CMI) in Edinburgh. I've just noticed that you've been very kind in posting a note about Filmhouse's upcoming screenings of 'I Know Where I'm Going!' at the end of the year, but your contributor appears to have overlooked that we'll also be showing The Edge Of The World at around the same time: 29th December at 20:45 and 31st December at 13:10 and 16:00. Thought this might be worth a mention as well!

Additionally, my colleagues and I have been putting together a few items relating to the two films for a display in our corridors, which might be of interest to Powell and Pressburger aficionados in the Edinburgh area. This is comprised of several original stills from the two films and a few pieces of original publicity material, including a fascinating exploitation booklet for 'I Know Where I'm Going!', as well as a postcard advertising Michael Powell's January 1938 visit to the Edinburgh Film Guild to discuss making The Edge Of The World. Powell was a long-time friend of the Guild (which, along with Filmhouse, is now also part of the CMI), and had previously visited in October 1936 to discuss the film just after the completion of shooting, and allowed rushes from the film to be shown to Guild audiences in December of the same year.

I hope this may be of some use to you and your readers!

Paul Gerrard tells us:

Arthur's On The Green, which is a cosy little restaurant literally on the edge of Twickenham Green, is planning to show The Red Shoes on Sunday 25th and Monday 26th November. It's not yet on their website, but it's in their latest newsletter that I receive by email. I've been there for a couple of their Film Nights and it's great fun.

In their own words:-
"At our Film Nights Tony creates a menu around the subject of the film. The evenings begin at 7.00pm when you have your starter and main course and then at about 8.30pm when everyone has finished eating we turn the lights down and show the film. During the film we serve tubs of homemade ice cream and a coffee afterwards. £25 per guest."

They haven't published the themed menu for TRS, but I have a funny feeling Pavlova could be involved. I don't think Swan is allowed. Press-Burger and Fries maybe?

18 October - 27 January
Christoph tells us:

Interesting photography exhibition by Tim Walker at Somerset House until 26th January, entry is free. His motifs are very cinematic and the first room of the exhibition features

"a re-interpretation of Neo-Romantic cinema: the doomed Lancaster pilot of A Matter of Life and Death (1946). As a Spitfire corkscrews down to earth, the modern world tilts a little on its axis and into a different time and place.".........well at least that's what the ticket on the wall says, and the room features what looks like a 2/3 scale model Spitfire which appears in some of the photos, I'm thinking he chose to make a model of a Spitfire as a Lancaster would have been too big...so its more like a tribute to "The Battle of Britain" film rather than AMOLAD,interesting tho.

Sarah Morpeth tells us

Artist Knows Where She is Going!

A new exhibition is coming to the Isle of Mull this summer. The artist, Sarah Morpeth, has been obsessed with the Powell & Pressburger film, I Know Where I'm Going! since her childhood. The film, which was made on location on the Isle of Mull in 1945 is the inspiration for a collection of new work. The film centres on Joan Webster who is stranded on the island awaiting a crossing to 'Kiloran' where she is to marry a rich industrialist. In the intervening time this young lady's firm plans are hopelessly unravelled as she falls in love with naval officer Torquil MacNeil, who is also stuck on Mull.

Sarah came to Mull in March of this year to visit the locations featured in the film. Amongst the places she visited, highlights included a personal tour of Moy Castle, kindly given by owner Jim Corbett of Loch Buie, and a bus journey to Tobermory from Pennyghael, similar to a trip undertaken by characters Joan & Torquil in the film.

During her time on Mull the artist met local people who had memories of the film being made.

For each of three locations, Sarah has made a new work, building on an existing collection of artists books and installations that she had previously made for the main characters in the film. Using printed and intricately hand cut paper, featuring dialogue from the film, Sarah has constructed a body of work that comments intelligently on the layers of meaning in the film.

The exhibition will be on display at An Tobar, the Tobermory arts centre, throughout July & August.

Exhibition runs from until 1st July 2012 - 31st August 2012
Open Mon-Sat 10am-5pm Sundays 2 - 5pm Admission free.

An Tobar, the Tobermory Arts Centre, was established in 1997 as an arts centre serving the isles of Mull and Iona and surrounding area, bringing the best creative talents in visual arts and music to the heart of this rural community. In its fifteen years, AN TOBAR has brought together artists and musicians from across Scotland and internationally and has commissioned work from artists including Paul Kenny, Deirdre Nelson and Dalziel + Scullion.

Sarah has a blog about the project at www.ikwig.tumblr.com; there is more information about the artist at www.sarahmorpeth.com.

Well, it's official, following swiftly on the heels of Berlin, Valence in France is the latest for a PnP retrospective. They are featuring seven films including many of the big hitters: A Matter of Life and Death, Peeping Tom, Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. They'll also show The Thief of Bagdad and, to their credit, The Tales of Hoffmann -- hooray! At this festival also, the scheduling allows 5 or 6 films to be viewed over a couple of days. I wonder if they have camping. Yes... Camping et Hotel le Manoir.

The PnP page on their site is very attractive but, unfortunately, Emeric is conspicuous by his absence, only getting a mention in the intro. as Powell's "accomplice" and not even appearing in the main photo! Shame!! But another festival -- good! The Lux Scene Nationale is in Valence, 50 km south of the culinary capital of Lyon, in the Midi-Pyrénées area of France.

15 May - 26 June
Simon Turner tells us:

My apologies to anyone reading in Argentina or Uruguay within reach of Buenos Aires, as I have picked up on your 13-film Powell and Pressburger retrospective only after half of the films have been shown! The Asociación Argentina de Cultura Inglesa, otherwise known as the British Arts Centre, have yet to show Black Narcissus, I Know Where I'm Going!, The Tales of Hoffmann, The Small Back Room, Peeping Tom and Ill Met By Moonlight.

The ones that have come and gone (and were hopefully seen by many) were equally good: The Red Shoes, The Spy in Black, A Matter of Life and Death, 49th Parallel, Contraband, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp and One of Our Aircraft is Missing. Well done Buenos Aires Brit Arts Centre for such a comprehensive programme! Nitpicking, the only major omissions are The Edge of the World, Gone To Earth and They're a Weird Mob (while The Spy in Black, Contraband, Ill Met By Moonlight and Contraband are interchangeable with the omitted Oh Rosalinda!! and The Queen's Guards). An awesome line-up.

Remaining to be shown are Black Narcissus (Narciso negro) at 5pm on the 12th June. Screening on the evening of the 12th June, at 8pm, is I Know Where I'm Going! (Sé adónde voy). At 5pm on the 19th June is The Tales of Hoffmann (Los cuentos de Hoffmann). Screening during the evening on the 19th, at 8pm, is The Small Back Room (Su peor enemigo). On the 26th June at 5pm is Peeping Tom (Tres rostros para el miedo). That evening (the 26th) sees the final film of the festival, Ill Met by Moonlight (Emboscada).

28 March
Diane Broadbent Friedman tells us:

The Granville (Ohio) Historical Society will be showing A Canterbury Tale as part of their March meeting Wednesday March 28 at 7 PM at the Bryn Du mansion. I'm going to give a little introduction.
Why? Because Granville is where John Sweet spent his teen age years --and where my grandmother worked at the Historical Society after she retired as a cook in the Faculty Club at Ohio State University.

The Bryn Du mansion is the fanciest place in town--I've never been in there. John Sweet's family ran another hotel in town--the Buxton Inn --for a few years. A lot of Welsh people settled here. The hills around the town are called the Welsh Hills. There are also some really interesting indian mounds about 5 miles further east, build by the group called the Mound Builders.

Wouldn't it be fun to come to central Ohio in early spring?

Paula Vitaris tells us:

Here's one for the screening schedule!

Location is Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where I work, so you know I'll be there!

Black Narcissus (1947)

Wednesday, March 28, 2012 @ 7:30pm
Location:
White Hall 205
301 Dowman Drive
Atlanta, GA 30322
"Black Narcissus" (Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger; The Archers, 1947) (1.37:1, 100 min.) Produced by Powell & Pressburger; written by Powell and Pressburger from the novel by Rumer Godden; starring Deborah Kerr, Flora Robson, Kathleen Byron, David Farrar, Sabu and Jean Simmons. Cinematography by Jack Cardiff.

This India set-film about a group of nuns unprepared for the overripe sensuousness engulfing their isolated mountain convent, was shot entirely in Britain's Pinewood Studios and the garden of a retired army officer in West Sussex that contained the appropriate foliage. Director Powell felt that this was the only way to achieve the complete unity in visual design that he envisioned. The results were spectacular, with the film earning Alfred Junge a pair of Academy Awards for color art direction and set design as well as one for Jack Cardiff's color cinematography.

Department/Organization:
Film Studies
Director: Michael Power and Emeric Pressburger
Series: Emory Cinematheque
Speaker/Presenter: Curated by Dr. Karla Oeler
Event Open To: All
Cost: Free

The new schedule of films for The Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, CA is now up, and I'm thrilled to see that they will be screening the restoration of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp on the weekend of 11-13 February, showtimes at 7:30 pm with a matinee on Sunday at 3:30. I believe this may be the première showing of the restoration in the SF Bay Area, and as TRS restoration never made it to this particular theatre, am so happy that I can see BLIMP at my local venue. They are also screening Olivier's Shakespeare films; it's been decades since I've seen Henry V on the big screen.

Nick Dando adds:
I used to ride my bicycle through Ryton and it always looked a lovely hamlet. For some reason it's known as Great Ryton, probably to distinguish itself from the other Rytons in Shropshire, and from Ruyton XI Towns.

Condover is where the brass band came from that played at God's Little Mountain and whose members polished off all the jam tartlets before Farmer James (Edward Chapman) could have one.

Simon Turner tells us:

Peeping Tom is back again at the excellent Prince Charles cinema in London. It is as recent as October that it was on there last and returns for a screening on the 23rd January at 6.40pm. Unfortunately, it clashes with The Queen's Guards on at the BFI Southbank. It would have been good to see both and spot the psychology link.
